Find the best Taunton walks. The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional resource for all walkers, hikers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to leader led walks to any really arduous walks within the Holiday Inn Taunton area.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

GO Outdoors

St Johns Retail Park Units 2+3, Taunton TA1 2BB, UK – 0344 387 6848

Not bad. I like the shop. Got a lot and some good stock. Was a little hard to get help from staff, but when we did was all ok

Staff were really helpful. Thank you.

Taunton Leisure

40 E Reach, Taunton TA1 3ES, UK – 01823 332987

Went in for a ditched effort to buy a tent quickly for last minute family camp trip. I called in the morning for the tent i wanted and a really helpful guy called James advised and couldn't be anymore helpful. When i was in store to collect at the end of the day he was exactly the same. He went above and beyond for me. Thumbs up guys! Service is key!👍

Extremely helpful staff, they fixed my tent pole (and I haven't forgotten I owe you donuts) I also purchased accessories for my tent. I phoned on Friday and was able to pick them up on Saturday. I'd definitely go back for all my camping supplies.

Mountain Warehouse Taunton

48 North St, Taunton TA1 1LX, UK – 01823 330644

The staff were so friendly and helpful. I went through my Everest Base Camp trekking list with Hannah and pretty much found everything that I need with helpful suggestions and tips given. I found the shop to be well organised and tidy.

I had a frustrating shopping trip to taunton but the staff at mountain warehouse were friendly and very helpful and saved the day!

Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the UK. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks.

Crucially you can also find walks France, Spain, Norway, Portugal and Australia!

Camping and Caravaning

Tanpits Cider Farm

West Monkton, Taunton TA2 8BZ, UK – 01823 974845

What a gem. Good value, lovely pitch in orchard with plenty of room. Owners very friendly and worked hard on the site. On recycling day they resegregated everything into small containers for the collection. Water nice and hot. Wildfowl wandering free was special, although peacocks could be noisy. Location on canal excellent for cycling and walking. Taunton 2 mile walk nice parks, shops, cafes and museum.

A beautiful little campsite for caravans or tents. Friendly welcoming staff, and good rates. Site is very close to all main outlet shops
